Mrs. Susan Madore
I'm so excited to be working with your child. Fourth grade is an exciting time to learn and grow. I look forward to helping your child during this important transitional year. I am originally from New Jersey - the daughter of two school teachers. I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Economics and went on to obtain my CPA. After working in the corporate world for several years, I left to start a family. It was during this time with my children that I discovered my desire to teach. With two parents being teachers, I guess it's always been in my blood! I went back to school to Brenau University to get my teachers certification and feel that I have truly found my calling. I've been at Shiloh Point since it opened in 2006.
